English: Boring or bored?

Have you ever felt 'bored'?
Have

you ever met someone who you thought was 'boring'?
Find out how to use 'bored' and 'boring' correctly! 
'Bored' and 'boring' are both adjectives that describe a general feeling of disinterest.

✅Bored=describes your own feelings in a particular situation.

"I am bored, let’s go to the movies tonight."

In this example, the feeling of being 'bored' is temporary and the speaker thinks that it will pass once they see the movie.

✅Boring=describes people, things and places or situations that cause you to feel bored.

"Staying at my grandmother’s house is so boring."

In this example, the speaker is describing an ongoing state or characteristic:
"it is always boring at their grandma's house."

"She is bored."
This means that she is feeling bored right now, but this could change if something interesting happens.
